Nicole’s interest in hair started from a young age, when she would try to get her mom to pay her for a luxury “hair brush”. After trying out a job in the corporate world, she decided to get a job with real benefits; coworkers like family and clients-turned-friends.

The meaning behind Salt + Light Hair Co.

As Told By Our Owner, Dena

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. 

 

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 

 

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” - Matthew 5:13-16

“When you sit down, and look at yourself in a salon mirror, what do you see? If you work in the beauty industry, it’s very common to see beautiful women with good hearts come in, sit down, and start to pick themselves apart. 

 

When the long-time dream of opening a salon literally fell into my lap, I thought a lot about my experiences in the past, and how I wanted my clients to feel walking into Salt & Light Hair Co. I realized that getting your hair done wasn’t just colors and cutting, it was connected to our self confidence and worth.

 

Salt & Light Hair Co. is a place for all of us to learn to be kinder to ourselves, pick ourselves up, and feel beautiful in every aspect of our lives. It of course reflects the beach town we live in, but also explains the type of people we strive to be every day. We want to be reasonable, grounded and humble, while bringing goodness to the world and making our client’s day brighter.”
